Canon Reveals Portrait & Travel 2-Lens Kit; More Info at B&H Photo

Photography News: Canon Wants to Help Photographers Get a Great Start on Their Lens Kits With This New Portrait & Travel 2-Lens Kit, Featuring the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 01, 2016) - B&H is pleased to share the announcement of the Portrait & Travel 2-Lens Kit from Canon, a bundle including the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lenses. Because the kit is optimized for APS-C DSLRs, these lenses will provide equivalent focal lengths of 80mm and 16-28.8mm, respectively. The EF 50mm, which is compatible with full-frame cameras as well, provides a short telephoto perspective and fast f/1.8 aperture that make it ideal for creating portraits with a shallow depth of field. The 10-18mm lens, on the other hand, is a compact ultra-wide zoom that is a great option for landscapes and general-purpose shooting. When combined, this kit provides shooters with a versatile set of optics to get out and start shooting.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens

The optical design of Canon's EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens incorporates optimized coatings that help to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. The f/1.8 maximum aperture is effective for low-light shooting as well as for controlling your focus plane for selective focus shooting. Seven rounded diaphragm blades further enhance the look of out of focus regions in an image, making it well-suited to portraiture and creative environmental shooting.
